    I recently attended the Chicago Symphony Brass concert this past week. I was blown away by the performance, but was very confused when the principle trumpet player brought out an instrument I had never seen before. It looked like a small french horn, but had a sound between a trumpet and cornet. I have look all over the net and can't find what instrument this might be. I know that it is in the trumpet family, but that is the extent of my knowledge. Can anyone help me out?

    If it looked like this one, it is probably a valved hunting horn (post horn).

    I have one. Fun thing to play traditional Norwegian wedding songs on.

    You Norwegians must have it pretty tough if you need hunting horns to get weddings arranged. Here in Germany at least we have a "lower impact" way to court.

    Norwegians actually have to hunt for their wives, before and after the wedding.
